BANNOCKBURN, Ill., USA, - After 12 years as the president and CEO of IPC - Association Connecting Electronics Industries®, Dennis "Denny" P. McGuirk has resigned to accept a new position as president and CEO of SEMI, a global industry association serving the manufacturing supply chains for the microelectronic, display and photovoltaic industries. His last day at IPC will be November 1.

"Denny has been a tremendous leader and a great friend to our industry. I am sure I speak for the entire board in saying that he will be sadly missed. IPC is in a great position thanks to his hard work and dedication," says Robert Ferguson, chairman of the IPC Board of Directors.

In his tenure at IPC, McGuirk steered the organization through two difficult recessions and reshaped IPC into a global organization. When he joined IPC in 2000, the organization had 2,500 members with less than 25 percent located outside of the United States. Under his leadership, IPC's reach and services significantly expanded onto new continents. Today, IPC has more than 3,000 members of which 38 percent are located outside the United States, and its programs and services are delivered globally. IPC maintains offices in the United States, Stockholm, Moscow, Bangalore, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Suzhou and Beijing. The organization has 75 authorized training centers in the United States, Asia and Europe and has published 105 translated standards.

McGuirk says, "I have thoroughly enjoyed serving as president and CEO of IPC during this exciting and challenging time. The involvement and interaction with the board of directors, our staff and most importantly, our members around the world has been personally and professionally rewarding for me. I am confident the organization will go on to even greater success in the future and I look forward to following the progress of the organization and all of the friends I've made along the way." Ferguson will chair a search committee that will conduct a global search for McGuirk's replacement.
